3GirlJam April Challenge

Hello Friends!

We have a new challenge over at 3GilJam Challenge for April it is "Anything Goes with Ribbon".

Here is my take on the challenge:

This is a card from SVG Cuts.  I replaced the egg in the center with this fussy cut girl out of Graphic45 Sweet Sentiments Collection.  I also used the Daffodil Ribbon from the Spring Flowers Bundle.

This is what the card looks like opened.

It is a very unique fold card.

A Prize Winner & A Chocolate Bunny!

Hello Everyone,

Today I thought I would show you a very simple card that I made from SVG Cuts.  It is a chocolate bunny.  My kids would never eat any candy that was shaped like something...so I could not give them chocolate bunnies or peeps; they would not eat them.  A card is much better!

Isn't he cute?  I cut several layers of brown on my Cameo Silhouette, gave him a bling eye, a ribbon for his neck and a cotton ball for his tail.

I wanted to make him so that I could enter my friend Cari's contest over at Double Click - AKA AbusyBee because I am constantly buying skittles from her and never entering her contest!

Okay, now on to the drawing for the Disney Prize Package....Mr. Random.org will draw the number...and the winner is....Cricut Craftin Grammy!  Congratulations!  Please send me your address at america57@comcast.net and I will get this prize out to you!


OSAAT Challenge #233 Anything Goes With Nature

Good Morning My Friends & Welcome Visitors!

We only have two more days to go for the drawing of the Disney Prize Package.  So far, there are only 9 entries!  Remember, you have to leave me a message on the Disney Prize Package Page (click on picture on right) to let me know that you want to win!

Today there is a new challenge over at One Stitch At A Time it is Challenge #233 Anything Goes with Nature.  Here is my card!

How do you like this image of the little girl breaking out of the egg?  Or is she wearing an egg costume?  Either way, it looks like spring to me!  You can purchase her at the Stitchy Bear Store by clicking HERE.  She is by BBKates and she is called "New Spring"  I love BBKates work, if you look at her digital stamps, you will find one of me!  She drew a stamp of me sitting at my scrapbook table a couple years ago.  So the paper I used is Graphic45 Time to Flourish March, the square doilly is from Cameo Silhouette, the scalloped square is from Cameo Silhouette as is the card.  The tag is some older tags that I have had for awhile, and the bling is from Prima e.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and the sentiment is Cardz TV "Think Spring"  I made my Girl 3-D by cutting her out on my Cameo Silhouette and using pop dots to make her stand out from the page.  I also gave her a "shadow" with my gray copic marker.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

A Birthday Gift

Good Day My Friends and Welcome Visitors!

Today I would like to show you a birthday gift that I made.  I used one of my Quick Quote Kits; I love them because they are so easy to use and they give you an idea of where to start and you end up with your own creation.  So...here was the Quick Quote Shadowbox Kit..remember you can click on the picture to make it bigger...

And this is what I made with it.

I started out by coloring the sides of the canvas with Blue Jeans & Feather Gray Powder Puff Chalking Ink.  I then used the papers that came with the kit as patterns to cut the papers I wanted to use.  The blue paper is Graphic 45 By the Sea and the orange, brown blue stripped paper is a very old paper from BoBunny called Paradise.  I then edged all of the rest of the pieces that came from the kit in Powder Puff Coral Chalking Ink.

The photo is Sharps Island Lighthouse it is a special place out in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay that we like to visit.  It is kinda lonely & spooky, but really cool.  The day we took this picture, it was showing off for us.  I chose the BoBunny paper to reflect the it's beautiful rust colors.  

This "Moments" sentiment came with the kit.  I chalked it, added a different color behind it and some pearls.

Do you see that metal flower?  I received an entire bag of them with the kit!  I love using it because the lighthouse is metal too.  The cardboard flowers & flourishes came with the kit and I just chalked them with coral.  The other flowers are from the Prima Seashore Collection as is the flair at the top. 

Ride the waves is from Prima Seashore also, all of the pearls are from Prima e.  See the little sea-gull sitting on a barrel?  He is 3-D, I bought him on e-bay a long time ago.  He sits right in the frame.

Well that was certainly a long post!  Thanks for hanging in there with me!
